When more than 60 dishes from all over Asia are arranged in front of you, won’t your tummy get full by just looking at them?
If you use all the hashtags for food posts on Instagram, ta-da , you get the Pan Asian Saturday Brunch by Vasco’s Hilton.
A group of food bloggers were given a chance to hog on an awesome brunch on a Saturday noon at Vasco’s Hilton. The first thing I noticed after entering Vasco’s was the ambiance. It looked like a comfort place to sit and enjoy some good food yet every interiors details were done with great care.
Then the courteous ever smiling staffs who made sure I ate till my throat just like my grandma 😛 Of course the food, from appetizers to desserts, the variety was huge. I had to take at least a few minutes to admire that beauty and to decide from where to start the buffet.
Some of the star dishes from the menu are
Cantonese spring roll(Vegetable Spring Rolls with sweet Chilly Dip)
Chicken Gyoza(Japanese style pan seared chicken gyoza)
Duck salad(Poached eggs, frisee, sherry vinaigrette)

This is the first time for Hilton Chennai to come up with a Pan Asian brunch and Achal Aggarwal, Executive Chef at the hotel, who holds his forte in Asian cuisine (with specialisation in Japanese cuisine) took great care to satisfy the palate of guest visiting Hilton from all over the country.
Prices: INR 1945 plus taxes per person (non-alcoholic), INR 2345 plus taxes per person (alcoholic), INR 950 plus taxes for children of the age 5 to 12 years. Children below 5 years go complimentary.
Timings: 12:30 pm until 3:30 pm on all Saturdays
There was nothing to complain about the quality of the food, the spread and the way it was presented. But brunch at star hotel is a costly affair.
Was the brunch at Vasco’s worth the money?
It totally depends on you.
If you are a hardcore foodie who loves Asian food,this brunch buffet will totally satisfy you and it will be worth of every penny you spend.
I kind of fall under an in-between category. As much as I love to try new cuisines and restaurants, I am picky with a few dishes. For example, I have not tried pork, beef and a few sea food from the spread. When it comes to sea food, I am more inclined towards the south Indian style preparation.
If you are in to Indian cuisines alone, then this Pan Asian brunch is definitely not for you. Though Rotis and curries are available on request, ordering that alone just does not do justice for this awesome brunch 🙂
